Earcandy has released the first product in the Authentic Collection Series; the PPG 360 Wavecomputer library for Kontakt 5, which features eccentric, unique and quirky programs from the extremely rare PPG 360 Wavecomputer digital synthesizer serial number 007.
- This is a rare synthesizer with a total of only approximately 40 units made in the late seventies.
- The library consists of 100 programs.
- The 30 factory programs plus 5 programs from the owner were sampled exactly as they are on the PPG 360 Wavecomputer one note at a time.
- The final 65 programs were created tweaking these 35 programs via the interface directly in Kontakt 5.
- More than 3000 samples were recorded through industry leading equipment at 24-bit/96kHz.
- All samples were looped and mapped to capture the feeling of the real unit.
- Settings like no velocity sensitivity and hard panning voices have been maintained, but via the CHEATS section you can do some stuff not available on the PPG 360 Wavecomputer.
- Full polyphony instead of only 8 voices on the real synth. Apart from this not much else has been added.
The PPG 360 Wavecomputer library is approved by PPG owner and creator of Wavetable Synthesis - Mr. Wolfgang Palm - this library is meant for those looking for rare and unique PPG sounds. Mr. Palm had this to say: "A very precise and complete library which captures the details and quirks of the original PPG synthesizer. Very good".
The Earcandy Authentic Collection is a collection of products created to get as close as possible to the real sounds from different sound generating instruments.
The library is available now at €49 directly from earcandymedia.com where you will also find more information, sound examples and historical details on the PPG 360 Wavecomputer including pictures of the actual PPG 360 Wavecomputer.
